Movie Info

The best of Universal-International's followups to Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein, Abbott & Costello Meet the Invisible Man casts Bud and Lou as mail-order private eyes. The boys champion the cause of boxer Arthur Franz, who has been framed for murder. Utilizing the formula created by Claude Rains in the original Invisible Man (1933), Franz vanishes before Dr. Gavin Muir's astonished eyes. Cloaked by invisibility, Franz talks Bud and Lou into helping him nab the real murderer, gangster

Mediocre A&C packed with corn and laughs.

My favorite of the duo's adventures into Universal Monster-Town.

Audience Reviews for Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man

Just like every other Abbott and Costello movie, it's fun but very silly. Overall, it's entertaining, but it could have been better if it were a real invisible man movie instead of a comedy.
